Halloween test tubes

My 2 oldest children dont go Trick or Treating anymore, so I thought I would still give them some candy. I found these candy filled test tube/beakers at Walmart and jazzed them up a bit with some cute tags.
Like my last Halloween post, I used the 2" JustRite stamp for the wording. The spider is from a Cuttlebug die.

I wanted to make the spider look hairy-scary so I used black glitter to make him look sparkly!

Christmas Birds

I wanted to make a card that wasn't my usual style and I thought these Spellbinders "Nested Birds" would be great for that. I had a hard time getting a good photo where you could see the detail in the embossing. The background is Cuttlebugs "Leafy Branch" and the bird was embossed with "Devine Swirl". I used some gold cardstock, gold brads, and gold ribbon for an accent. The tag at the bottom rolled to give a little dimension.

Thanksgiving Leaves

There isn't much out there in the scrapbooking world for Thanksgiving, but fallish leaves are always a good choice. I used the Cuttlebug maple leaf to cut & emboss. Then tied some hemp string around them.

Tyler's Treats!

Tyler and I had a few people we wanted to make treat bags for this Halloween. I love the "Boo to You" Cuttlebug folder because its so easy just to punch out the circles.

The 2" JustRite stamper worked perfectly for the outer saying. This set has different saying starters so I just had to personalize it with Ty's name. We stamped & filled some cello bags with candy and tied them shut with matching ribbon. Too cute!!

Thanksgiving place cards

I finally finished up the place cards I was working on for my aunt. She always has the nicest table setting at Thanksgiving so I wanted to make her some pretty place cards. I needed to make about 17, now I just need to put the names in and they will be complete. I was going to use rub-ons but I think I will just print them out on the computer and punch them out... much easier! The stamp set I used was Autumn Foliage by Inkadinkado.

Spellbinders Poinsettias

I love these new Nested Poinsettias from Spellbinders. I think they make the prettiest Christmas flowers.
Its hard to tell, but the middle flower layer is popped up along with the Merry Christmas tag. The background has embossed poinsettias, contact me if you are looking for this folder.
For an added accent I put 3 red dew drops in the center.

Flower Soft is here!

Lots of single and mixed colors of Flower Soft have arrived! This product is wonderful for adding dimension to your cards or layouts.
If you have never worked with Flower Soft before, watch this YouTube video to see how its used:

I wish the clarity was a bit better on the video, but you will get the concept.

Pumpkin Harvest

I am so happy with how this card turned out! I need to send out some Fall/Thanksgiving cards to some of my out of town family.
I used all Cuttlebug folders and dies for this card.
If you are interested in either of the "Autumn Type" background or the "Pumpkin Spice" die cut send me an email and I will set them aside for you. They are going fast but I will order more...

"Ice" Day!

Boy, does it feel like winter is coming quick! I have quite a few birthday cards to work on this weekend, and I felt like using this cute little penguin with this nasty weather outside.
I used the Friendly characters stamp set and a snowflake background from Cuttlebug.

There are always lots of new stamps arriving so be sure to stop by and check them out.
